Description
Torque Studios is a BAFTA-nominated independent team from Manchester, UK that was formed after winning Dare To Be Digital 2014. They specialise in innovative use of new technology to create fun, accessible and unique game experiences.

History
Early History
Torque Studios was unofficially formed in March 2014 for Abertay University's Dare To Be Digital competition. They were accepted into the competition and spent the summer developing Don't Walk: RUN!, a prototype tech demo for a real-time second screen multiplayer game. After a successful week showcasing the game at ProtoPlay, Don't Walk: RUN! was declared a winner of the competition, and became a nominee for a BAFTA Ones To Watch award. The team also won an award from British Broadcaster Channel 4, securing a funding commission to continue development on Don't Walk: RUN!
Forming Torque Studios
Immediately after formalising Torque Studios as an independent games developer, the team began redesigning and building on the foundations of the Don't Walk: RUN! Prototype. Soon after, the team unveiled Glitchrunners – a truly unique multiplayer second-screen experience.
